The 2nd ENVRI policy workshop concentrates on the newly created ENVRI Policy Framework. This document looks at some of the key policy drivers relevant to ENVRI data service providers – originating in the EOSC Rules of Participation, the FAIR Principles  and developments such as the ENVRI-Hub – and derives requirements for ENVRI RIs policies needed to be compliant with these. The Policy Framework collects together 31 policy statements covering issues on a wide range of data-, metadata- and service related decisions, presents their interconnections, and gives notes on the policy implementation.

The main audience for the workshop are leaders and administrators in ENVRI Community RIs who are responsible for drafting and developing policies – but others with a keen interest in policy questions are also welcome.

During the workshop, we will discuss:

  • Are the suggested policy statements clear and understandable?
  • Is the level of detail suitable for use?
  • Are there clear challenges for implementation in your RI?
  • Have the policy drivers been correctly analysed?
  • Has your RI already implemented these policy statements?
  • What are the next steps to create a more harmonised RI policy landscape in ENVRI?
